Even with a 1A rated charger, my Nokia goes flat when using Navigon for 2 hours. It's impossible to go on a reasonable drive! Surely this cannot be true...
Disabling 4G, background tasks and setting low screen brightness does not help. Phone still discharges.
Any similar experiences or suggestions?

I am using the Visible Green Car Charger Cable from Dexim with a PowerJolt Dual Universal Micro From Griffin didn't buy them together and the Griffin Dual is just a 12 volt 1 amp charger... I bought them both at BestBuy but you can purchases them both from just about anywhere even the suppliers website... The Dexim cable only lights up when the phone is taking a charge so far I can confirm I have two cables and they really do work... They do look a bit fragile... The Griffin Dual USB charger does charge my iPad3 even though it's not the higher amperage version or at least the charge indicator says its charging... I am posting this because I remember before I bought the Dexim cables my Samsung Focus S and my Nokia Lumia 920 both were dead when using GPS for a long time even though I had them connected to the charge cables so I think it's best to use a better grade cable or at least try something new...

That's most likely a navigon issue. I've used 920 with Nokia drive, it lasts about 3-3.5hours before ran out. And I tried a car charger(not sure about specs but 2$ from amazon), it goes on for 3 hours and still at 70%. That's more than 8 hours straight and I feel that's enough for most of my needs

It's not just Navigon, I have had the same happen with Drive and with Waze on long drives.
it's probably the screen constantly updating and running GPS that is eating the battery quicker than the charger can put juice into it. This is of course with all non-essential features turned OFF for the drive (wifi, bluetooth etc.)
Mine lasted about 3 hours. The phone needs a beefier battery, which is never going to happen.
Answer is to use a Tom Tom or dedicated sat-nav over a 920.
Or drive at 200mph.
